Greetings from the President

Greetings from the President, Nido R. Qubein

Dear Friend:

Final preparations are under way for an exciting 2016 Commencement Weekend at High Point University. This event is always a highlight of the academic year. It will be a weekend of celebration, reflection, motivation and gratitude.

Each year HPU is committed to bringing an internationally known speaker to campus for this special occasion. This year we are proud to have former secretary of state and national security advisor Dr. Condoleezza Rice, as our speaker. Past Commencement speakers have included distinguished journalist Tom Brokaw, former secretary of state General Colin Powell, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, Her Majesty Queen Noor of Jordan, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, NASA Astronaut Dr. Buzz Aldrin, Muhtar Kent, CEO of the Coca-Cola Company, former First Lady Laura Bush, and Apple Computer co-founder Steve Wozniak.

On this website, you will find information needed to plan your weekend. This experience is intended to honor our graduates and their families, and we trust you will find the details you seek in making it a memorable event in the life of your family.

On behalf of the faculty, staff and administration, we look forward to celebrating this momentous occasion with you and your family.

Sincerely,

Nido R. Qubein
